Assessment Rates Commerce clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003.17 This clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by GVN for which this company did not know that the merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) 13 See 19 CFR 351.309(d). 19 CFR 351.309(c)(2) and (d)(2). 15 See 19 CFR 351.310(c). 16 See 19 CFR 351.303(f). 17 For a full discussion of this clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). 14 See PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 40029 involved in the transaction. Further, instead of rescinding the review with respect to GVN, we find it appropriate to complete the review and issue liquidation instruction to CBP concerning entries for GVN following issuance of the final results of review. If we continue to find that GVN had no shipments of subject merchandise in the final results, we will instruct CBP to liquidate any existing entries of merchandise produced by GVN, but exported by other parties, at the rate for the intermediate reseller, if available, or at the all-others rate.18 We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final results of this review. Cash Deposit Requirements If the final results of review continue to find that GVN had no shipments during the POR, there will be no change to the existing cash deposit requirements. Notification to Importers This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in Commerce’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

administrative review excludes OCTG from India ``both produced and 
exported'' by GVN.\5\ In May and June 2019, Commerce requested

production, sale, or shipment of subject merchandise during the POR.\6\ 
On July 1, 2019, GVN reported that it did not sell or export the 
subject merchandise to the United States during the POR that was 
produced by any other company, nor, to its knowledge, was any subject 
merchandise it produced shipped or sold to the United States during the 
POR by any other company.\7\ On July 2, 2019, we transmitted a ``No-

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    Based on record evidence, we preliminarily determine that GVN had 
no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. Specifically, CBP 
indicated that it found no shipments by GVN during the POR.\10\ 
Consistent with Commerce's practice, we find that it is not appropriate 
to rescind the review with respect to GVN but, rather, to complete the 
review and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final 
results of this review.\11\

Assessment Rates

    Commerce clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on May 
6, 2003.\17\ This clarification will apply to entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR produced by GVN for which this company did 
not know that the merchandise was destined for the United States. In 
such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at 
the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate 
company(ies) involved in the transaction. Further, instead of 
rescinding the review with respect to GVN, we find it appropriate to 
complete the review and issue liquidation instruction to CBP concerning 
entries for GVN following issuance of the final results of review. If 
we continue to find that GVN had no shipments of subject merchandise in 
the final results, we will instruct CBP to liquidate any existing 
entries of merchandise produced by GVN, but exported by other parties, 
at the rate for the intermediate reseller, if available, or at the all-
others rate.\18\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \17\ For a full discussion of this clarification, see 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of 
Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after the 
publication date of the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    If the final results of review continue to find that GVN had no 
shipments during the POR, there will be no change to the existing cash 
deposit requirements.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of 
their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in Commerce's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: August 7, 2019.
Jeffrey I. Kessler,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
